Because of Winn-Dixie

We have been reading aloud from Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate di Camilla.
It is the story of Opal, a young girl in Florida, and her dog, Winn-Dixie.

How do you think Opal has grown and changed in this story?

How do you think Winn-Dixie has grown and changed by this point in the story?

What about the preacher? How do you think he has grown and changed since the story began?

What do you think about the other characters like Gloria Dump and Sweetie Pie Thomas?

Would you like to meet Opal and Winn-Dixie?

Do you think it would be hard to move to a new town where you didn't know anyone?
Have you ever moved to a new town?
